That's exactly it! That's the difference. I've thought about this some more after rory opened this discussion and that is the conclusion. For some reason I like keeping the other option available in my mind even though I've chosen not to go for it. It's like I never really make permanent choises, they're always open for another thought. I'm not sure it's a good thing.

I actually believe in that, that's my world view. That's why this topic is something that has been bothering me for quite some time now, because I don't want to keep wanting things I can't have. It's something I'd like to learn to change in me. But I haven't managed to do that yet.
